The Cernunnos Festival is the third edition of the french Pagan Metal Festival organized by "Les Acteurs De L'Ombre", a non-profit-making association 1901 law. "Les Acteurs De L'ombre" is also a webzine www.lesacteursdelombre.com, a web TV at www.nrv-tv.com and of course show organization in several French towns even if most of concerts are organized in Paris. Moreover we have a deal with "Le Klub" for 2 years now which allows us to organize 1 or 2 concerts by month. We also organize specific festivals such as the "Black Metal is Rising", "Doom Over The World", "Butchering Paris Festival" and now the "Cernunnos Festival."

Cernunnos Festival was born because of the fall of attendance to metal concerts in general, and we wanted to answer this problem with an unifying and innovative events. Whether there are severals Pagan metal festival in foreign countries, especially in Germany, none of them proposed such a diversified programme.

The Cernunnos Festival will gather Traditional Medieval listenners and also Pagan Metalheads in order to live a memorable show. We thanks again people who support this project; labels, associations, magazines, shops, webzines, radios, bands and of course everyone who will be there.

Interesting lineup. At least you don't get all the bands our German pagan metal festivals feature all the time (Korpi, Moonsorrow, Turisas, Týr, ...), but some variety for a change. Would love to see Obtest.

Err... what? What gives you the idea that Melechesh would be ruining the festival's atmosphere??

He thinks it will ruin it just because he doesn't like the band (but then again he also thinks Primordial are shit). But IMO Melechesh is superior to any of the other bands there.

welll it's called "Cernunnos Pagan Festival" and most of the line up are European Folk metal and Folk. I think it will sound very awkward (well at least for me) to see a middle eastern styled black metal band headlining the Fest. I have nothing against Melechesh, I saw them live when they were for the first in The Netherlands and it was pretty cool and Emissaries is a very soild album.

If you're referring to Heathen Crusade, that one ain't that bad at all. Well, it wasn't that bad before they replaced 1/3 of their lineup of this year's edition. Still, their past lineups have always been top-notch and interesting. And I'd love to see a European festival having the guts to get Rudra.

Whoah this looks fucking awesome, I'm gonna do my best to convince my girlfriend to let me go haha.
Dagorwen - 19.12.2008 at 14:38  
Its tomorrow!!!!! YEAH!!! I'm soooo excited!!!! I'll be SO great!!!

edit: indeed so was it! really awesome, almost all the bands were terrific (well, not the medieval-without-bagpipe one, Tempradura, and the hrpist, but as it was no only metal event, it was great they were here)! The Barbarian Games were SO funny (even if I lost almost all of them). It was he best gig of the year (I didn't went to Hellfest)!
Sjuk - 22.12.2008 at 17:42  
It was an awesome gig !
Dagorwen - 22.12.2008 at 23:02  
Valholl, Night Creeper, Black Messiah, Folkstone and Obtest were my favorites. Melechesh was great to, but they were only six drunken guys in the moshpit, and a drunken moshpit is definitely shity!
I also get hurted in one of the moshpits and my nose bled a lot, it was SO good, I had blood all over, I aspired it from the inner and made it pour out of my mouth. Metal, blood and early middle age: what else?
